Garlic Scapes

Things to do in the short short Garlic Scape season:

Garlic Scapes

Mix 10-12 ounces of cream cheese in the food processor with 4 garlic scapes and 3 tablespoons of fresh dill.  Combine until well pureed.  Ours took on a pale green color, and after sitting in the refrigerator overnight had a lovely fresh garlic taste today.

Chop garlic scapes and sauté in butter.  Add balsamic vinegar and reduce.  Baste pork tenderloin with it, or use as a dipping sauce for whatever suits your fancy.   Any kind of savory fritters or dumplings spring to mind.

Saute garlic scapes in butter.  Combine in a processor with olive oil, some good parmesan, and some oregano and you have a lovely garlic pesto-like spread.

Just blanch them for 3 minutes, then sauté them, roast them, or substitute them in any dish you would use asparagus.

Substitute them anywhere you would use garlic, scallions, or both.
